INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts and Meijer will host a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Lucas Oil Stadium in late April, the team announced Friday.

The free clinic will be available to Indiana residents 18 years and older on April 23-24. The first dose of the Moderna vaccine will be administered at the stadium.

Second doses of the Moderna vaccine will be given at the stadium on May 21-22.

The vaccine supply is limited to 4,000 doses over both days in April, and appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first served basis. People wanting to secure an appointment will be required to pre-register by texting COLTS to 75049 or visiting by 4 p.m. April 19.

Registering is not the same as scheduling an appointment and means a person will be eligible to receive an invitation to reserve a time to receive the vaccination. Registration for the clinic is not available through the state's vaccination website.

Appointments will be available in 5-minute increments. Once a time slot is filled, it will no longer display on the scheduling page.

After registration ends on April 19, eligible recipients will receive a phone call or text message with a link to schedule an appointment. Appointments will not be available to schedule until April 20.
